This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to June and September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This clematis was introduced in 2018 to mark the arrival of His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. The flowers are large, and each violet-blue petal has an irregular creamy white stripe along their length, so they produce a fresh two-tone effect against the backdrop of rich green foliage. Once the main flush of flowers dies back, this hardy clematis will often produce a second, less profuse flush of flowers, which will add a spash of colour in early autumn.

  • Garden care: Remove dead and damaged stems before growth begins in early spring, cutting all remaining stems back to where strong buds are visible. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
